I would go far to say this year we will have 2 guys eclipse 1000 yards and another in the 800's...could have had 2 last year even if we had another Import (hello Dressler) play 18 games, or had a guy like Thompkins play all 18 games and keep them involved....also too...If Woli wasn't ignored for first half of season other than times Strev's was in he could have eclipsed it too.

The 1000 yard receiver isn't predicated on guys just gobbling up deep shots...average 55 yards a game and you have 1000 if u play all 18

A lot will be determined by Matthew's ability to gain YAC yards and how LaPo uses him, he's big but not particularly fast or elusive.  If they use him like they did Thomkins last season coming to a stop to receive the ball instead of hitting him in stride he'll have a hard time breaking 1,000.

He could end up being a big possession type of receiver for us. I don't think him hitting a 1000 will predicate on him putting up big YAC yards. Thompkins received a lot of short passes and I don't see the Bombers using Matthews in that type of role. Lots of intermediate sideline outs are in his future I think.

As i agree with this... the thing is i think from what i and we have seen Steav might jus be the better QB to exacute it.

Not counting out Nic but with Mattews and Adams being a big threat ....   i jus hope Nic has the arm.

This thing with Lapo running short passes is not what he does but what had to do to keep the ball....  now he will open it up with these 2. He has a legit deep threat. He has 2.... Hes been around long enough to understand and ajust to what he has id think.

I also like the fact Streav can take off n run.

I like Nic but this all seems to be set for Steav.
